La inversión en startups tecnológicas en el sector seguros se ha multiplicado por 7 desde el 2013

Según el informe “Panorama Insurtech” que ha elaborado la consultora multinacional Everis,  un nuevo ecosistema formado por compañías de seguros, gigantes de la tecnología y startups disruptivas Insurtech está transformando la industria de los seguros. En este contexto, el mercado está en pleno auge: la inversión en startups tecnológicas del sector seguros se ha multiplicado por siete desde 2013.

En gran parte es porque  los fondos de capital riesgo de las aseguradoras están diversificando sus inversiones para integrar nuevas capacidades digitales en sus estrategias de negocio. De esta manera, las aseguradoras son capaces de ofrecer una cartera de servicios más completa para satisfacer las nuevas necesidades de los consumidores.

Los gigantes tecnológicos Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon y Alibaba también invierten en el sector InsurTech, aprovechando sus capacidades digitales, la información que disponen de los clientes, y su capacidad para procesar grandes volúmenes de datos. Mediante la aplicación de tecnologías Big Data e IoT, monetizan los datos de los clientes y abren el camino al desarrollo de nuevos productos y a la redefinición de las pólizas de seguro inteligentes.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
